Famous quotes containing the word domestic:
“Let me obtain forgiveness of thee, Samson,
Afford me place to shew what recompence
Towards thee I intend for what I have misdone,
Misguided; only what remains past cure
Bear not too sensibly, nor still insist
To afflict thy self in vain: though sight be lost,
Life yet hath many solaces, enjoyd
Where other senses want not their delights
At home in leisure and domestic ease,”
—John Milton (16081674)
“Our domestic problems are for the most part economic. We have our enormous debt to pay, and we are paying it. We have the high cost of government to diminish, and we are diminishing it. We have a heavy burden of taxation to reduce, and we are reducing it. But while remarkable progress has been made in these directions, the work is yet far from accomplished.”
—Calvin Coolidge (18721933)
“We all haveto put it as nicely as I canour lower centres and our higher centres. Our lower centres act: they act with terrible power that sometimes destroys us; but they dont talk.... Since the war the lower centres have become vocal. And the effect is that of an earthquake. For they speak truths that have never been spoken beforetruths that the makers of our domestic institutions have tried to ignore.”
—George Bernard Shaw (18561950)
